They Exist in Two Places at Once

March 25 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dance films by Palestinian and Palestinian-American artists
Hosted by Fidget

This program includes dances for the camera by four Palestinian and Palestinian-American artists and companies who live and work in the U.S. and The Levant. During the pandemic many choreographers began making dance films as a way to share their work. Palestinian artists–who often don’t have access to their collaborators or audiences due to frequently closed checkpoints and denied visas–have been experts at remote and digital collaborations for years.

The participating artists, Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre (with Samar Haddad King, Artistic Director and Zoe Rabinowitz, Executive Director), Mette Loulou von Kohl, Leila Awadallah, and Aya Razzaz make films that address their identities in the Palestinian diaspora, and their relationships to land. Their work, while aesthetically diverse, contains threads of viscerality and dream-like qualities. The longest of the four works is Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre’s 3 X 13–co-created and directed by Eimi Imanishi– includes 12 narratives, 8 countries, and 5 languages, as each participating artist recounts a journey that changed the path of their lives.

The dance filmmakers will either be present to talk about their work in-person, or they will share their process in a prerecorded talk.

This event is sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace-Philadelphia (JVP-Philly) and produced by Nicole Bindler.

Program A: 7:00pm & Program B: 8:30pm

Advance tickets strongly recommended.
All proceeds will go toward artist fees and Fidget venue staffing.
